Not knowing what to say—or being too idea rich & time poor to clearly craft it into a live or recorded presentation—shouldn’t be the thing holding you back from making sales, building trust, or accomplishing your goals.
Quite frankly, long as your communication skills aren’t winning you work, they could ALSO be losing you work.
Because no, your expertise—and creative brilliance—doesn’t always translate into a presentation that gets a standing ovation from an audience.
(Ouch, I know.)
I’ve seen how transferable acting skills are to sincere and engaging communication in my real life. Knowing how to get the most out of your mind, body, and voice will not only make you look confident and competent but will aid you in connecting with the people you are speaking to and create positive emotions people remember.
I’m here to help you engage, empower, and connect with your audience when you speak or perform, so you’re positioned as a trusted, relatable leader who people want to work with and support.
Let me help you get the results what you want as a speaker and performer.
I hold a BA in Theatre Arts with an focus on Acting, Directing, and Educational Theatre from Western Washington University. I interned at the Seattle Children's Theatre and have managed afterschool drama clubs, taught classes & workshops.
Additionally, I learned how to sharing information clearly, respectfully, and with a sense of humor as a tour guide & trainer for a religious historical site that received 5 million visitors from around the world annually--including VIP guests (dignitaries, world leaders, ambassadors, celebrities).
We can have daring conversations about anything if… psychological safety is cultivated. We will do our best to first help you to feel safe working with us and --even with yourself.
I don’t believe in hiring a coach every time you need to speak or work on your messaging: you CAN be your own best coach, given the right frameworks.
When it's time for your vocal words to stir action within your listeners...
... instead of floating around their heads--like dust--never landing more than a second,—& generally *not* helping you get those future opportunities…
"Don't be a don't do-er." ... AND.... "Get on your feet and start working it out."
